Beginning with the Fall 2020 term, Ithaca College is introducing a new service for online textbook ordering.

Our goal is to provide more affordable textbook options for students.  Created in partnership with Akademos, Inc. and powered by TextbookX, the Online Bookstore simplifies the textbook process for students and faculty members.

Faculty Resources

Faculty members will use our convenient web portal to submit their course materials in advance of each semester. Using this portal, faculty will view the courses they will be teaching, select the books they want to use, and see what costs would be for students. The portal also has an option for creating course packs.
